DVD Review



I apologize for not being more active, but not having other reviewers or books to review, it's been a little difficult. However I want to let you know about this wonderful DVD "God's Not Dead." Working at the library I found it on our shelves and took it home. When I brought it back I raved about it. I wanted to take it out again, but it seems word gets around. It's always on hold for someone else. That's great.

The opening scene is in a freshman college philosophy class. The professor states he is an atheist, and asks that if everyone will sign a paper with 3 little words on it he can dispense of the dust and get to the subject. Those 3 words are "God Is Dead." One student cannot sign that. He is given 3 chances to argue the case of the existence of God before the class.

Fueled by hate on one side and a determined love of God on the other this is not your simple movie. The poor kid researches and goes off on a journey of his own to state his case. The end is nothing short of amazing. I guess telling people stuff like this is one of the reasons I can't get a hold of it a second time. It's really that good.

Day of Prayer


A man of meager means, reverently closes his Bible, sets aside his glasses, and bows his head as he thanks his Maker for the food he is about to eat. Scripture says, "Man does not live by bread alone, but by every word the comes from the mouth of God." As Christian writers and reviewers we understand the power of the written word, but more than that, our responsibility to the Living Word. We are like the man in the picture above, setting everything aside to take time to thank God for what we have.

All too often people today complain about what they do not have. We are going to dedicate ourselves to praying for what we have. I have always loved the above picture. I believe my uncle had it on his wall. There is a certain nobility about this man that the richest king cannot touch, and do you know why? Because this man is a child of the King of kings. As Christians that is who we are, children of the Most High God. If our clothes looks a little ragged, well praise God that we have clothes. If our food is a little sparce, we thank God that we have something to eat. If we feel we are growing old, we thank God for a wonderful life in Him and ask Him for just one more day to please Him in service.

With that in mind we ask that all of you would join us in this day of prayer as we will be touring FORGIVING SEAN, by Jessica Adriel this week. This powerful story is something that could change the course of lives so they might not have to face some of the heartaches that are described in the book. Our teens are at stake here people. If you don't believe the enemy is trying to snatch away our teens then talk to a parent of teens or go see where they hang out, how they are drawn towards many things that have trapped them into a life with no purpose, no love, no hope. Jesus came to set these people free. This is why CFRB exists. We aren't trying to get people on bestseller's lists, but to shine light into dark places so Jesus can set these people free. Won't you set today aside to join with us in prayer for this tour? Come back tomorrow and see what God has in store. - David Brollier; co-founder CFRB

Here is my humble prayer:
Father, I just want to thank you for the love you have poured out on me. I know that in the natural I don't deserve your love, but I also realize that you called me worthy. The very act of sending your son to die for my sins is more than I can fully understand, but it is this love that saved me. So I thank you Father, for your love, for your son, for your forgiveness, for your people. Bless all your children Father. I ask that you especially anoint those writing reviews and working to make this book tour successful, because we don't measure success by dollars and cents, but by how much we please you and by how we are used by you to tell the great story of your wonderful love. May FORGIVING SEAN touch the hearts of many people, especial the young people dear Father, because they are being deceived by the enemy. They have been told they are unlovable, but you love them. May they see this love you have for them in our eyes and hear it in their ears when we speak to them. May they come to know that your love is all about forgiveness when we don't deserve forgiveness. It's all about coming to know you and be part of this great, big, diverse family. Thank you Heavenly Father. We thank you for hearing this and for answering this prayer, in the name of your One and Only Son Jesus. Amen.

IMPORTANT
The Christian Fiction Review Blog (known as CFRB) is a ministry that promotes quality Christian fiction in order that the Gospel of Jesus Christ may be shared with others who might hear it in a context that they would appreciate and understand. Each book is "previewed" in order to maintain the quality and content of the book. Books that are accepted for blog tours are given to the members by the author to review, according to the number of members
requesting a copy. It is the belief and practice of CFRB to post positive reviews as a type of payment for these books. However, I want to emphasize again that these books first go through a preview stage where they are deemed of a high enough quality to tour.
